J. LOUIS ACcoIN. ri We are authorized to announce p P. Wallace Lefort, l as a (mndidato for the ofoe of Clerk of Court. of the Pariah of Lafourche, subjuct to nomina tion by Primary Election of the Democratic Ce Partly of aaid Parish. W Col. B. F. Jonas in the Race u .IK'erThe Renat.e,' ta Col. B. F. Jonas, of New Orleans, el who represented Louisiana in the Senate several years ago, has recentlv entered the race with the St. Mary statesman for Senatorial honors unit has addressed the fo!!owing letter to the vote's: To th.* White Democratic Voters of IiOui:Iini: At the urgent solicitation of niany friends in all sections of the state. I have determined to be a can dtidate at the approaching primate eclletion for the United States Senate. I enter upon the candidai'v hbcause I believe that the people in ordering this primary election had for their sole purpose to give an opportunity to the white Democratic voters of the State to select their own cadidates by thcir own votes, free from the thctation, control and machine modes if rings and txases, either in New Orleans or the country parishes. Loug suttering from packed con ventious and official dictation. they have arieen in protest against sucn methods as have prevailed for the last ten years, and have plainly indi sated that they will tolerate them no longer. In face of this popular expressior, it seems that an attempt is being made, in the same old quarters, to form combinations, and to elect or ganizations, to narrow the field of contest, and to force the voters if possible to accept a selected ticket made in the old style so familiar in our latter day coaventions. before the people, and indeed the two distinguished candidates for Governor have declared their entire indepen dence of combination or pledges, which assurances I fully accept; yet combination tickets have been indor sed, and pledges have been made, even antedating the final call for the primary election. I submit my candidacy as a protest at least, against this ticket-making, ti and the unanimity with which, it is being served tip to the public, and le will elaboirate my objections before et the Democratic voters of the State. em In national politics my record is U pretty well known to the people of et Louisiana. to I have ever been a supporter of tc Democratic principles and candidates, d and have addressed the people in their support in nearly every parish of the State and every ward in the city. I have done this in the days when machine noinmiationa were unknown, h when political methodis had nut been p boi rowed fronm the Republicans, but il when we were compelied to fight suck h methods, then used against us, by a; powerful and unscrupulotis enemy, a assisted by the Federal Government, p its couits and bayonets. s I had the honor to serve you iin the d Senate when we first gained our poll- t tical freedom at homne, and when t] el-ery debate called for the defense of our people until the Democratic Par ty, durinig the time of my service, 1 succeeded in emancipating the South erm people from the last remains of Federal political control. When in 1879 the leading Demo crstic citizens of the Parishes of Cad do, Tensas and Natchitoches were in ducted in the United States Circuit Court for alkged political offenses and were brought to trial in New Or leans. I not only defended them on the floor of the Senate, but left my seat and acted as a volunteer counsel for the defendants before the CourL During my whole service in the Senate, I faithfully defended all Louisiana interests, especitlly those of sugar and rice, and successfully (:as the retorit will show) in 18S3, when the former interest was threa tened with destruction in a Repub liean Hense, and saved in the Seniate. On this occision, I succeeded in securing the support and co-operation of every Dtmocratic Senator. I took a !eading part in preventing Ithe ratification of Secretary Bllaine's Mexican Reciprocity Treaty, and con dticted the teliate at itie ri quest of m' colletigue. Gener'! (uihson. I opposed all so called reciprocity treatie6, andl, if elected, shall continue; so to do, and shall also oppose all the trusts and comlinostions which mire tirding to control production and to destroy labor, anti the small dea lers and mechanics, and especialy the Sugar Trust, which holds the cane producer by the throat. I have always been an advocate of river improvement and of the levee system in and out of Congress. During a pottion of my term, I served as Chairman of the Committee we on the Improvement of the Missis- a sippi River, end was among the first to advocate and demand Federal aid for building and maintaining levees, th not only as an adjunct to the improve ment of navigation upon that mighty of river, but for the protection of the people diving upon its banks and their mu property against its devastating floods. I shall visit the people during the lit campaign and discuts these questions with them at greater length, and thus endeavor to ascertain whether I have "lost leosh" with the people w.sveaw taken no personal part in the machine wi campaigns of the last ten years. io Rsspeetfully, bli B.
